🔹 Tests weight: 20 | A shallow check of the single-responsibility principle; PHP files should perform no action - including output of placeholder text - and trigger no errors when accessed directly
Please fix the following
  • 4× PHP files trigger server-side errors or warnings when accessed directly:
    • > PHP Warning
      include_once(ABSPATHwp-admin/includes/plugin.php): failed to open stream: No such file or directory in wp-content/plugins/acf-media-credit/media-credit.php on line 10
    • > PHP Fatal error
      Uncaught Error: Call to undefined function add_action() in wp-content/plugins/acf-media-credit/media-credit.php:18
    • > PHP Warning
      Use of undefined constant ABSPATH - assumed 'ABSPATH' (this will throw an Error in a future version of PHP) in wp-content/plugins/acf-media-credit/media-credit.php on line 10
    • > PHP Warning
      include_once(): Failed opening 'ABSPATHwp-admin/includes/plugin.php' for inclusion (include_path='.:/usr/share/php') in wp-content/plugins/acf-media-credit/media-credit.php on line 10

User-side errors Passed 1 test

🔹 Test weight: 20 | Just a short smoke test targeting errors on the browser (console and network errors and warnings)

Don't ignore readme.txt as it is the file that instructs WordPress.org on how to present your plugin to the world
These attributes need your attention:
  • Screenshots: These screenshots require images: #1 (What the fields look like when added to a media item), #2 (A clearer shot of those fields on a media attachment), #3 (One of the functions available to developers)
  • Tags: Please reduce the number of tags, currently 11 tag instead of maximum 10
The official readme.txt might help

acf-media-credit/media-credit.php 85% from 13 tests

Analyzing the main PHP file in "ACF Media Credit" version 2.3.7
The following require your attention:
  • Description: Keep the plugin description shorter than 140 characters (currently 145 characters long)
